The M2 CS comes with less weight and more power - a perfect mixture for awesomeness

BMW introduced the 2020 M2 CS and the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and, while it is focused around BMW’s M-Sport DNA, it’s also focus on luxury and comfort as well. On the outside, the M2 CS doesn’t look overly extreme. Sure, it’s a little more extreme than the M2 it is based on, but the goal here was to shed weight, and shed weight it did. Most of thw eight savings come courtesy of the CFRP body panels and components, the most prominent of which is the hood – it’s now nearly 50-percent lighter than its steel counterpart. In addition to this, the roof of the M2 CS is also made from CFRP, which is – believe it or not – a first for the M2.

Inside, the weight saving measures continued. The transmission tunnel, for instance is also made from CFRP – just another weight to shed 6 pounds from the overall weight of the car. The center armrest and dash trim are covered in Alcantara as is steering wheel. As part of the “keepin it luxurious” mentality, the steering wheel isn’t as sporty as you might expect with no flat-bottom in sight. The sport seats, on the other hand, exude the echos of a performance car and are finished in a mixture of Alcantara and Black Merino leather with red contrast stitching.

Under the hood sits BMW’s now-common 3.0-liter inline-six that’s been tuned to deliver a total of 444 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. That’s an increase of 39 horsepower over the M2 Competition, and it’s all channeled through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. This extra boost in power and reduction in weight puts the M2 CS in a position to sprint to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. If you opt for the manual transmission, you’ll make the same sprint in four-seconds flat. Top Speed is pinned at 174 mph and the Adaptive M Suspension – another first for the M2 – will help keep things stable and smooth at higher speeds.

The BMW M2 Cs goes on sale in the second half of 2020.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
